Mystery Lovers Society: In conversation with Alice K. Boatwright


In this video we joined author Alice Boatwright in conversation about her British Mystery series - the Ellie Kent mystery series, her time in the UK and her latest book. Alice is the winner of the 2016 Mystery and Mayhem Grand Prize. 


Alice talked about her series featuring an American woman, Ellie Kent, who marries a British vicar and moves to the Cotswolds. When she finds a body in the churchyard soon after her arrival, she is accused of murder and must draw on her past experience as a researcher to solve this crime. . . as well as other mysteries.


Alice also described her experience living in a country where she shared the language (sort of!), had a British sounding name and wore British clothes, but was always aware that she was a "foreigner". She also reads several passages from her books.


The program will consist of:


  • An interview with author Alice K. Boatwright moderated by Britsburgh Mystery Lovers Society Co-Chair, Chris Skerlong.
  • A live Question and Answer period with the author.


About Alice K. Boatwright:

Alice K. Boatwright is the author of award-winning mysteries and literary fiction. Her mysteries about the skeptical American Ellie Kent, who marries a handsome English vicar and moves to his Cotswold village, have generated an enthusiastic following. The stories draw on the author's own experiences as an ex-pat living in an English village - as well as her longstanding love of English culture (her first job at age 15 was as a minstrel at a Shakespeare theater in Connecticut). The first book in the series, UNDER AN ENGLISH HEAVEN, won 2016 Mystery & Mayhem Grand Prize for best mystery; and WHAT CHILD IS THIS? (Book 2) has become a popular Christmas read. IN THE LIFE EVER AFTER (Book 3) will be published in 2021.  She and her husband make their home in Seattle.
